Suncor resumes Canadian oil sands operations

Suncor Energy Inc. has resumed normal operations at its oil sands and in situ facilities after slowing them on Oct. 17 following a third-party supplier disruption of natural gas affecting the Wood Buffalo region of northeast Alberta, the company reported late on Oct. 18.

Suncor’s supply of natural gas—which is necessary to oil sand production and bitumen upgrading activities—halted on Oct. 17 after TransCanada’s Nova Gas Transmission Ltd. suffered a rupture on its pipeline system 138 km west of Fort McMurray, Alta. (OGJ Online, Oct. 18, 2013).
